Why Choose Us?

A Family-Friendly Hospital Dedicated to Quality Patient Care & Animal Welfare

Since 1972, Fort Washington Veterinary Hospital has been committed to your pet’s good health and your peace of mind as a partner you can trust.

From our initial beginnings in Dr. Horwitz’s house, we have grown into a five-doctor practice known for our service, quality, and respect for the patients in our care.

Along the way our values have always remained the same:

  • To utilize the best equipment and most progressive clinical knowledge available
  • To provide our clients with information on preventative health care
  • To provide a friendly, supportive atmosphere for our clients and their pets

If you are new to our practice, we look forward to welcoming you and your pet into our family—many of our employees have been with us for over 10 years and we are also delighted to serve several second-generation clients who have been with us for over 40 years!

We work with a network of veterinary experts with whom we can coordinate consultations and/or specialized care for your pet.

We appreciate the extraordinary efforts by rescues and other companion animal organizations throughout the Fort Washington area. Our team participates in activities to support and raise awareness for them, and we offer veterinary discounts to help them achieve their goals. We also value the service of our active duty armed forces, police, and fire personnel and offer discounts to these individuals as well.

We understand the special responsibility and faith you place in us for optimal care of your pet and we thank you for this.

If you have any feedback, questions, or comments you would like to share about your experiences at our hospital, please let us know.
